August 22, 2017

Sel Kofiga is a contemporary African Creator with so much to offer to the art community. I don’t know anything about seeing faces of people during my day and going back home to paint memories of the expressions they wore on their faces, I do not think in pictures and colours, but Sel Kofiga does in […]

Home Alone: By Chinua Ezenwa-Ohaeto

August 5, 2017

The rain started with a rush of the wind that slashed open the pots sitting at the edge of the hut. Their covers were displaced as if the wind had been without food for days. It had been like this in my village, Nkwerre, for weeks. It was June, the beginning of rainy season. I […]

July 26, 2017

Matilda woke up to a disturbingly high-pitched hum coming from the television. She reached for the remote controller which was seated beside her.

Everybody is looking for something: Kofi Eghan

May 6, 2017

Everybody is looking for something and I am not an exception, But what I seek is not what everybody is looking for. Life is a race but we’ve all been given our own time and distance, Only to run but at our own pace. Desire, oh my desires! My love for you grows profoundly because […]

Home Away from Home: Random Thoughts By Kofi Eghan

May 6, 2017

Sometimes my life is like an open book. So fragile that even the winds could flip through its pages. Sometimes my life is as hard as a rock. So firm and rooted that even the waters cannot wash away. Sometimes I need some time alone. Not to be lonely, but to be alone. Sometimes I […]

Before You Talk About Love: Poetry by Kofi Eghan

April 21, 2017

OSSIFRAGE : A poem by Antony Akpevwe G

April 1, 2017

He is the scavenger who crushed your bones And picked your marrow clean Your common wealth he replaced with stones. He is your hope’s hunter With the powerful neck and fat belly From decades of drinking in oil-rich water. Your soft interior, hidden in bone is where his sharp sight locks You surrendered your dreams […]
